From Common and Ordinary

Burning bush

And then this happened:

“When the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’  Then he said, ‘Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.’  And he said, ‘I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.” -Exodus 3:4-6

Oh, I would have loved to have been there for this event.  Why was the ground holy?  The ground was common and ordinary.  There were no special qualities or elements in the ground.  However, that ground became holy ground for one reason and one reason only:  THE PRESENCE OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB.

Just take a moment to think about that.

From common and ordinary ground to holy ground in an instant.  The presence of God, His glory, and from the inside of the burning bush, the voice of God calls out to Moses, calling him by name, and giving him a command not to come any closer.  God didn’t just command him “Do not come near; take your sandals off your feet,” but God also gave Moses the reason why “for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.”

“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” -Romans 8:11

The day you came to know God you went from being common and ordinary to holy and extraordinary because the presence of the Almighty God lives in you.  Never forget you have been destined for greatness with a calling on your life to do great exploits.  You are NOT ordinary.  You are NOT common.  You are a Child of the King, and no one can take that away from you.  You are the temple of the Holy Spirit, set apart, and being made holy as you are being perfected day after day.  Let no one take that away from you.

“Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you.” -2 Timothy 1:14


Much Love To You All,
